    This is good news. Let me ask the those who capture and hold Baha’i prisoners: When will The Yaran be released on bail?

    Relief for The Yaran by release from prison would be worth the price, though the practice of requiring bail is a notorious scam. Alas for a government that could stoop to such a practice.

    So so sad that in the 21st century and working towards the unification of mankind, we should rejoice at the news of an innocent activist for freedom and peace to be released on bail!!!!!!!!!!! What kind of international Human Rights allows such injustices still take place around the globe?
